I think this is a bug/restriction with the DFly release/image build or boot procedure.
Currently, the release/snapshot images are built with the installation USB stick default/fixed to "da8" , and it is therefore set to mount root from "da8s2a".
Therefore should be a method to determine the actually device name (e.g., "da9" here) of the installation USB stick, and make DFly mount root from there accordingly. Maybe the "initrd" image be the good/right place to implement this feature?
